This pattern is a great pattern to teach the techniques used for all of Missie's quilts that have English Paper Piecing and Applique' in them. It will cover the basics of Missie's technique of starch basting well so you should be ready to make a more involved quilt after learning on this project. Watch the videos in the Video section of the website to see how Missie uses the notions she's created for starch basting EPP and Applique'. The pattern will go in depth for each block so you will have the confidence to get hooked on the techniques used in this quilt!
A perfect companion to this pattern is the Starch Basting Technique Book written by Missie Carpenter. It is a workshop experience in itself for teaching EPP (and basting Applique' with starch). Suggested notions are very important for great and simply achieved results. These are listed above. They make a huge difference in the ease and success of starch basting.
